Woman Loses Everything After Voting Trump; Spouse Is Deported And Business Fails – The Intellectualist

Both Matheny and Roberto’s wife, Helen Beristain, were huge supporters of Trump in 2016. Roberto, however, was worried that Trump would deport Mexicans living in the U.S.

“Only the bad ones,” Matheny recalled saying.

But upon Trump’s election, Roberto’s fate took a turn for the worst. Every year, Roberto traveled to Miami to see an immigration lawyer and check in with Immigrations and Customs Enforcement. But less than a month into the Trump administration, during his annual trip to Miami, agents told him to visit the ICE office in Indianapolis. But while Helen waited in the car, she learned from an officer that Roberto would not be allowed to leave the building.

“It changed my view on how the country treats its immigrants,” he said. “I thought they would go after, like Trump said, those who were bringing in drugs and the rapists. But they went after a regular guy who just cared about living the American Dream.”
